loophole and exploit every tax break in the books. and i think he should include this in his job application. a new report shows mitt romney avoided paying big taxes on a trust fund he set up on his children's inheritance. he did it in a trust fund called, i dilg it. i'm serious. that's what it's called. i dig it. now, you may not dig it but governor romney certainly did. saving hundreds and thousands of taxes according to bloomberg. that's the same kind of creative accounting that allowed him to get a 14.1% tax rate. and now his running mate says, it just doesn't benefit america. >> this money creates jobs so you'll want to have more capital that goes to more businesses, especially small businesses like this one so more people and what we learned about mitt romney and his tax returns, he's a successful businessman. that's a good thing. >> ah, patriotism. this money creates jobs. prove it. show me one job, just one, that was created by romney paying less in taxes. the truth is, governor, governor romney's tax policies are bad for america. they are geared to the super rich. they h
bankrupt so he should take the credit for saving detroit. and he's just as hapless on taxes. >> raise taxes with obama care but he's got another taxes in mind. >> governor romney doesn't need zingers. he needs to get his story straight. he needs to stop debating himself. and at the end of the day, this election isn't about one liners. just ask our president. >> i know folks in the media are speculating already on who's going to have the best zingers. what i'm most concerned about is having a serious discussion about what we need to do to keep the country growing and restore security for hardworking americans. that's what people are going to be listening for. that's the debate that you deserve. >> that's the debate voters deserve. and on wednesday night, they won't be distracted by any zingers cooked up by romney's team of joke writers. joining me now is michelle cottle, washington correspondent for "newsweek" and the daily beast. and dana milbank, columnist for "the washington post." thanks to you both for coming on tonight. dana, are zingers the answer for mitt romney? >> well, he has to b
president clinton said today about your tax plan. >> we know what governor romney says, which is that his proposal for dealing with the debt is first to make it bigger by adopting another round of tax cuts, but he says he can do that without raising taxes on the middle class. i'm not sure that's possible. but he wants to defer until after the election saying what the specifics are. i think that ought to be a little bit of a red flag. >> there are red flags all over governor romney's policies. red flags for middle class voters. red flags on medicare. red flags on the handling of the economy. and all of that is adding up. just take ohio, where governor romney and congressman ryan, his running mate, are campaigning today. a republican has never won the white house without winning ohio. but here's their problem. they're losing it by eight points. not only that, they trail president obama by seven points among ohio voters on the economy. the problem isn't just mr. romney's indifference to 47% of the country, it's his policies for everyone. like his trickle down ideas, or his laughable tax rate
. medicare, 16 points up. taxes, 10 point up. immigration, 5 points up. foreign policy, 13 points up. so he is outpolling him by a significant number and in most cases, double digits on substantive issues. >> look, this is not at this point just about who you want to sit down with for a casual evening. >> right. >> this is who you want sitting behind the desk in the oval office deciding whether to voucherize medicare, raise taxes on the middle class, privatize social security. and krystal is right, romney had to move far to the right but having watched that tape, that's where is he comfortable. that's the best and easiest performance that i've seen him give. of course, his worst performance, too. i think people have figured him out. i think the ryan pick helped him figure it out. we still have the debates, the romney campaign inexplicably is raising their expectations. it's not really inexplicable. there's a reason for it. they've got a lot of wavering supporters and some of the super pacs they've got to say just wait for those debates on october 3rd. >> krystal, wanted to cut mr. romney so
they have to. and here's the reason they have to. they cannot possibly, possibly continue to add to the tax cuts of the super wealthy. >> that's what is behind the romney mask. that's what the next 39 days to the election are all about. and a special thank you to our fake president and mitt romney for helping us to predict this election. joining me now unmasked is krystal ball, co-host of "the nik kell" on msnbc and dana milbank. thank you both for being here this evening. >> thank, reverend. >> krystal, let me start with you. romney is falling behind not because he's a bad candidate. are voters rejecting his ideas as well? >> absolutely. as much as he's tried to hide behind the mask, democrats have been happy to fill in exactly what he stands for and what he's been saying in this election and i think he really sealed his fate. the 47% video was the nail in the coffin. really, he sealed his fate long ago when he was supporting things like personhood, an extreme piece of legislation that it was actually -- it actually failed in mississippi, the most pro life state in the country, focusing on
, in fact, still doesn't add much clarity to the tax plan. watch this. >> obviously the numbers add up. we've shown that. let's work together to establish that framework. and it's not as much as what's in the tax code as who gets it. >> i mean, what does that mean? >> listen, i think that's -- it's -- you brought that question exactly as -- and his answer has been part of the problem with the entire campaign. i think they're still trying to come up with this idea of how exactly do we distinguish, how exactly do we come up with some different type of policy that makes you better off. and i think they have not been able to come up with a answer that seems at all cogent to the larger american population. >> now, tad, you actually helped to plan debates against him when he debated the former senator ted kennedy. so you went up against mitt romney and prepared the ads against mitt romney. what kind of guy, how do we deal with this guy? what do you predict we're looking at tomorrow night? >> listen, i have to say mitt romney has come a long way from those debates in 1994. he's a much better deba
